If you test postive for Hep B core Antibody and are immuned, can you still transmit the virus to your sexual partner?
No you dont transmit the virus.. as the saying goes: you cant give something you dont have .positive for core means you were at one point exposed to hbv but the fact that you are clear then you are immuned and immunity with hbv goes for life
Also, are you still at risk for developing chrrosis and/ or cancer of the liver? God knows. NOT from HepB anyway. you just dont have it so it isnt a cause of cancer. remember hepB isnt the only virus relating to a liver disease.. excessive drinking might get you there you know
